Just read this article about parents who refuse to 'label' their 4 month old baby with a gender. It seems a little over the top to me, what do you ladies think?

I did read the article and I don't agree with their reasoning.. I do agree with the way Finkette handled it... sounds like her children will have a great childhood.. while this poor child will be asked and perhaps even picked on for the truth...Then he will wonder why his Parents did this to him.... Seems like to me that this couple in the article is drawing more attention to their baby's gender and want the spot light or something. Or course by sending Friends and family a Email saying the don't get to know something is gonna make them want to know even more.. As my Girls would say.. They are Drama Queens.. LOL

It's fine they don't want to tell people the gender of the baby,but I was a little thrown off by them allowing there 5 yo to wear a pink dress...nothing against it when they are older and know what that decision may lead too...cruelty...but at 5 they cant comprehend that..playing with dolls okay..playing house..okay...wearing a dress when your a boy...not so much...but it's their kids and they are allowed to raise them how thy see fit as long as there is no abuse or neglect then it's their choice.
